Comments on Sporepedia
« on: June 16, 2008, 04:18:54 pm »
I've noticed that Sporepedia uses a system where comments on User's creations have to be approved by said user before being listed.

Are comments from people with the Free Trial (that made an account before it was closed off) showing up on those with the full version? (none of mine seem to be).

Since none of my creatures made it up, are those with free trial version creatures online receiving comments to approve?

i've had 13 comments so far to approve, and most of them have been for my bush monster and floor-bown fly.

EDIT: i also had a comment from maxissarah today:)

Oh good, I was starting to wonder if I was wasting my time commenting on things (people weren't getting them) maybe they just weren't approved.

I wish they would show the number of votes and views on a creature.
I need a sig because the lack of one annoys me.

me too, right now, i can't tell how popular my creature really is. the green face means nothing if most of the creatures have that already.

Also, I really REALLY wish sporepedia could link to youtube videos of that creature somehow.

Another related problem, I've seen the exact same creature by the same user multiple times (as many as 5!). You'd think they'd limit that.

Yeah... I'm kind of curious how they will handle this............
I know several things they could do... but as far as it is going now, it looks like they are just wasting server space.

I got my first "spam" comment on a creature, i.e. a vague few word about on of my creatures and an invitation to view the commenter's creature.  I deleted it.

Does that seem harsh?  What do you do when you get comments with phrases like, "check out my...."?
It's clear that some people accept those comments, but personally i find them rude.

I find them rude too. Using other people's creations as an advertisement, so I just delete them. I usually check out and comment on people creature's when they view mine, but not if they're just spamming :P

If it's obviously a canned comment, I delete them.
